AJ Allmendinger to Drive the No. 16 SRS Distribution Chevrolet in Alsco Uniforms 302
Kaulig Racing is thrilled to welcome back SRS Distribution as a primary partner on board the No. 16 Chevrolet at Las Vegas Motor Speedway in the Alsco Uniforms 302.
Kaulig Racing’s partnership began at the 2022 NASCAR Cup Series (NCS) season-opener, with Heritage Pool Supply Group Inc (Heritage), one of the nation’s leading family of independent pool and supply distributors and a division of SRS, with Daniel Hemric for the 64th-running of the Daytona 500.
Recognized as one of the largest and fastest-growing building products distributors in the United States, SRS will team back up with Kaulig Racing this time at Las Vegas Motor Speedway with Allmendinger for the first race of the Round of Eight in the NASCAR Xfinity Series (NXS) playoffs.
“With Allmendinger behind the wheel, our partnership with Kaulig Racing will accelerate into high gear with the Vegas race.” said Dan Tinker, SRS President and CEO, “Seeing SRS in the victory lane at the Las Vegas Speedway during the NXS playoffs would be the ultimate win for our teammates and customers across the country.”
Allmendinger, who has already secured himself into the round of eight in the NXS playoffs, has made three starts at Las Vegas in the NXS, winning in his very first start, and securing a pole award earlier this year in the Alsco Uniforms 300.
“We’re so excited to be welcoming back SRS Distribution this year, only this time in a different capacity,” said Chris Rice, president of Kaulig Racing. “We had a successful partnership with SRS and one of its subsidiary companies, Heritage Pool Supply Group with Daniel (Hemric) at one of the biggest events in motorsports. Hopefully we can secure ourselves into the Xfinity Series championship race by getting SRS into victory lane in Las Vegas.”
Kaulig Racing announced earlier this week that Allmendinger will return to full-time NCS competition in 2023 after competing for this year’s NXS championship title.
The Alsco Uniforms 302 will take place on Saturday, October 15 at 2 p.m. CT with coverage on NBC.
